When I asked the pros at DermaCure for the newest, best treatment for my aging skin, I didn't expect the procedure to involve a blood draw - but that's exactly what I signed up for once I saw the Vampire Facial® "before and after" photos. Over and over again, images of women and men with tighter, smoother, glowing skin appeared before my eyes - and I was ready for my own Kim Kardasian blood-spattered Instagram moment. (Kim's a fan - and so is Angelina Jolie!).
The process uses your own Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP) and medical-grade micro-needling to radically improve the condition of the skin. It's the same concept Kobe Bryant made famous years ago when he utilized PRP injections to recover from injury. Now, the ultra-healing PRP growth factors are introduced to the deep dermal layers of your skin using micro punctures. The results speak for themselves.
The Vampire Facial® is Best For...
Women and men who think their skin looks more "grey" than "glow." The treatment increases blood flow and builds new vessels, cultivating a natural youthful gleam to the skin.
Those who have fine lines around the mouth, eyes and on the forehead and/or acne and trauma scars and stretch marks. Unlike synthetic fillers, the Vampire Facial® uses your own plasma to prompt your body to produce new, younger tissue that plumps and smooths your skin. Unlike fillers, the results are due to our own stem cells converting into collagen.
Clients who desire more dramatic results than prescription creams, facials and most peels can provide. These products and services are wonderfully supportive but the vast majority only affect the top dermal layers. Vampire Facial®s deeply penetrate the dermis, exposing more of your cells to collagen- and vessel-building stimulus.
Men and women who seek a natural solution to hair loss and thin, unhealthy strands. Vampire Facial® techniques, combined with tiny injections of your PRP, have been shown to noticeably improve hair density and quality.
How the Vampire Facial® Works
First, Dr. Ingber's nurse will perform an ultra-fast blood draw of less than what you usually have extracted at your annual physical; you'll be done in less than 10 seconds.
Next, using proprietary state-of-the-art technology, the platelets in your blood are isolated and Dr. Ingber extracts your Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP). DermaCure's method captures a remarkable 94-percent concentration of the ultra-healing substance.
After proper sterilization and prep, the micro-needling session begins. Micro-needles deeply penetrate the dermal layer at thousands of microscopic punctures a minute. The process tingles but isn't painful. With each break in the skin, isolated growth factors are driven deep, creating the stimulus for tightening and rejuvenation of collagen, vessels and the supportive tissue of the skin.
Then the patient's face is "painted" with the growth factors so that they soak into the tissue for further stimulation. The micro-punctures are open for about four hours after the procedure, so patients may be sent home with the remaining PRP to apply again at home.
You'll leave the DermaCure office looking like you have a mild sunburn. The day after the procedure, you'll experience mild redness and flaking of the skin that can easily be covered with cosmetics.
During the next two to three months, the growth factors activate multi-potent stem cells already in your skin, tricking them into "thinking" that there's been an injury and that new, younger tissue should be generated. These stem cells develop into new collagen, blood vessels and fatty tissue as they "repair" the skin that was never actually injured. Because the process only uses your own PRP, there are no side affects, risk of infection or tissue damage. The gorgeous effects last at least one to two years.
